The mission of Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) is to create, find and support programs that directly improve the health and well being of children.
Ronald McDonald House Charities, a non-profit, 501 (c) (3) corporation, creates, finds and supports programs that directly improve the health and well being of children. Its grassroots-driven programs offer help where children need it most - right in their own communities. RMHC makes an immediate, positive impact on children's lives through its global network of local Chapters in 52 countries and regions and its three core programs: the Ronald McDonald House, Ronald McDonald Family Room and Ronald McDonald Care Mobile. These programs provide a bridge to accessible health care and allow families more time together, which helps in the healing process. RMHC and its global network of local Chapters also have hundreds of millions of dollars in grants and program services to children's programs around the world.
Myself and many family members utilized this phenomenal organization after a devastating (out-of-state) car accident that placed several loved ones in different hospital. There are no words to describe how much these people helped us in this time of need whether it was by providing a place to shower/get a snack in the Ronald McDonald Family Room located in the hospitals that we rotated between for over a week or the beautifully appointed Ronald McDonald House where we could lay in a comfortable bed, eat a hot meal, and wash laundry (transportation between the hospitals and houses is provided by the Care Mobile). I can't stress how much caring thought goes into every detail of the free services this organization provides (donations are accepted) and it makes a huge difference in peoples lives at a time when they need it the most.
